The revolutionary XR18 is an 18-input, rackmountable stage box unit with 16 gain-programmable Midas-designed microphone preamps, two hi-Z inputs, Behringer's renowned X32 effects rack, a 100-band Real Time Analyzer on all channel and bus EQs, an 18 x 18 USB interface, and integrated Wi-Fi, all in a convenient rackmount chassis. Just add mics, and you have everything you need to mix a live show and record pristine multitrack sessions straight to your DAW. The Behringer XR18 gives you a whole new way to mix.

Built-in Wi-Fi and tablet integration for unprecedented mixing mobility

Behringer's XR18 gives you the ultimate in mixing mobility. Imagine always being able to mix from the most advantageous spot in the house! The XR18 acknowledges the reality of modern live mixing — that you don't want to be tied down to a fixed front-of-house mix location. Integrated Wi-Fi gives you remote control over the mixer's functions from your tablet or laptop without needing to set up and configure an external router. Now you can focus on your mix, moving around the venue to experience what your audience is hearing at any place in the auditorium. Tweak the mix from the balcony. Adjust the monitors from the performers' perspective. This is live mixing the way it should be — natural and intuitive. The result will be better-sounding shows!

  • Mix from anywhere in the venue
  • Instant wireless for your tablet or laptop
  • Complete remote control over mix functions
  • No need to set up and configure an external router

Let the Performers Mix Their Own Monitors - Compatibility with Behringer's Personal Monitoring System

The XR18's wireless capability makes it easy for you to modify a monitor mix from the performers' onstage perspective, but why not let the musicians mix their own IEMs or floor wedges? The XR18 features an Ultranet port for easy audio routing over Cat 5e cable to other Ultranet-compatible gear. Compatibility with Behringer's P16-M Personal Monitoring System means you can concentrate on whipping up a killer house mix and leave the monitor mix to the performers (trust us, they'll thank you for it). Now that's smart mixing! With 16 channels of personal monitoring, plus six aux sends to feed stage wedges, delayed mixes, or secondary rooms, you have it covered. If you've got big stadium gigs booked, then you'll be glad to know that you can easily integrate the XR18 into a larger setup using its Ethernet port to connect to a wired network or a monster router.

  • P16-M Personal Monitoring System compatible
  • 16 channels of personal monitoring
  • Six aux sends to feed stage wedges, etc.
  • Ethernet port connects to wired network

Comprehensive Channel Processing and Routing

The XR18's channels are fully loaded, with per-channel low-cut filters, gates, full dynamics (including compression, limiting, expansion, ducking, sidechaining, and more) fully parametric 4-band EQ, and routing to the six aux outputs. When it comes to EQ, the XR18 lets you analyze the frequency content of your tracks courtesy of its 100-band Real Time Analyzer, built into every input channel and then sculpt them with the bus equalizer. With visual feedback built right into the control app, you can see exactly what you need to do, and make fast, surgical adjustments to frequencies that need a boost or cut.

  • Smart features make mixing easier
  • Extensive per-channel processing
  • 100-band Real Time Analyzer
  • Visual feedback simplifies EQ

Studio-quality Effects - Virtual FX Rack with four true-stereo multi-effects processors

The XR18 has an entire arsenal of effects under the hood. The XR18's virtual FX Rack gives you four true-stereo (8 mono) multi-effects processors, including delay, chorus, and dynamics. This engine is beefy enough to simultaneously run high-quality, true-stereo reverbs and 31-band EQ, without the need for additional hardware. Select any combination of high-end simulations of classic studio reverbs such as the Lexicon 480L and PCM70, the EMT250, or the Quantec QRS. The XR18's onboard processing means your computer won't be tasked with additional heavy lifting during a mixdown session with numerous plug-ins.

  • Four stereo multi-effects processors
  • Simulations of legendary studio reverbs
  • Robust FX engine
  • Lightens the load on your computer

You can see how this arrangement can boost productivity in a live scenario, giving you an effortless, immaculate multitrack capture of the show to take back to your studio for post production. But whether you're capturing a live performance or tracking in the studio, you'll find the XR18 makes it amazingly easy to record great-sounding tracks.
